My friend is a very wonderful mother ... she does everything for her kids - except quit smoking.
She has smoked since 10th grade ( about 8 years now) , I know she has tried to quit several times but she just always starts smoking again...
After she had her first baby ( she now has 2 ), she started smoking in the driveway of her house ( she was afriad that even if she went on the porch the smoke would still blow in ) ...
Now , I am someone who gets sick when i am around cigg. smoke... my nose gets stuffed up, I get a headache and I just cant be around it at all.... I can go to her house and not even tell that she smokes ... Her house does not smell like smoke at all... but after she comes inside and if I get close enough to her I CAN smell it on her...
Her youngest child ( 1 year old ) is now having breathing problems ( bronchitis almost every other month) .... and she is so upset over this, but she thinks that smoking away from the house is working....
How would you explain this to her when she is already "fragile" over this subject ?
